Beginner's Guide to Enamelling (Beginner's Guide to Series) Jun 1, 2008
As the name suggests this is a brilliant book for not only the beginner, but advanced students will find many helpful suggestions within the pages. Very glad I purchased this book
Nice beginner project book Jan 8, 2008
I bought this book to get a little information about the art of enameling, and wasn't disappointed. As a new enameler (haven't even taken my first formal class yet) almost any book on the topic will teach me something. The projects in this book weren't hugely appealing, but that's not really the point. No doubt I'll have learned a lot just by doing them and that's good enough for my purposes right now.
Great Book for Enameling!! Dec 7, 2007
This book says a beginner's guide and it is perfect for that but I also learned a few things and I am not a beginner. Would highly recommend it for yourself or a gift for a "crafty" friend.
